The CWL Dallas Open Final brought together Team Kaliber and Splyce, two teams with a great track record, but hungry for trophies. The former haven’t won a major Call of Duty so they were naturally under a lot of pressure before the series began. Both teams had a couple of difficult matches throughout the playoffs and nobody expected the final to be a short and easy affair.
Just as the audience was hoping for, the first match was a thriller and Team Kaliber staged an incredible comeback. Kenny Williams was their instrumental player and in the later part of the game, he almost single-handedly dismantled opponents. At the end of the second match, it looked like Team Kaliber was heading to a sweep in the final act, as they were already 2-0 and showed clear dominance.
Splyce Shows Resilience to Force a Decisive Match
Team Kaliber was surprised to see that the Europeans played far more aggressively despite being on the brink in the third match. This strategy paid off as they won the first game and decided not to change anything in the next round. This resulted in a stunning victory on Ardennes Forest Hardpoint, a map that TK won five times in a row during the CWL Dallas Open.
The fifth and decisive game of the series was played on Sainte Marie du Mont Search and Destroy. Team Kaliber players showed extraordinary mental strength to focus after losing back-to-back games. They took control of the game early and never allowed opponents to claw their way back in the series. Victory was theirs and now the team prepares for the CWL New Orleans Open where they have to defend the recently secured championship.
